The line of marijuana products include salves, vape cartridges, and tonics that will be sold in dispensaries in San Diego, the Orange County area, and Los Angeles with Williams hoping to expand to other states.

However, athletes haven’t been his target market. Surprisingly enough, our research found that the main demographic coming into the (cannabis) market are women ages 35 to 60, Williams told Johnny Diaz of the South Florida Sun Sentinel . Cannabis coming on the scene is a re-emerging of herbalism back into our culture.
So what’s going on here? The potential explanations are these: (1) the NFLN reports are incorrect; (2) Jackson is lying; or (3) the unnamed sources relied on by NFLN are lying.
Whatever the reason(s) for this, it’s a prime example of why Jackson needs to hire an agent. Because this is precisely the kind of thing that a good agent can deal with, calling the NFLN reporters and pressuring them to unring the bell (in lieu of circling the wagons), calling other reporters to get Jackson’s version out there, and otherwise doing whatever has to be done to keep this episode from reflecting negatively on Jackson and, ideally, finding a way to make it reflect on him favorably.
Here’s the real question: Why would Jackson lie about this? He said he hasn’t been asked to work out as a receiver and wouldn’t if he were. If the requests have been made, why not simply say, Some of them asked me to do it, and I told them no.
The Dolphins have given Landry permission to seek a trade after they placed the franchise tag on the receiver. Landry, who would make a projected $16.2 million for 2018 under the franchise tag, reportedly seeks a contract similar to the four-year, $58 million deal that Green Bay’s Davante Adams signed.
Landry, 25, led the league in receptions with a single-season franchise-record 112 last season. He gained 987 yards and a career-best nine touchdowns.
I don’t know why the contracts of David Harris, Jacoby Brissett and Connor McDermott have incurred dead money that counts towards the Patriots salary cap. Harris retired, so doesn’t that mean that any financial obligations are forfeited as a result? Brissett and McDermott were traded and claimed off waivers, respectively, so doesn’t this mean those teams take on all of the players financial obligations and contract guarantees? Are the websites that take dead money into account wrong, or are the rules about dead money different than my interpretation of dead money in these cases?
